You would have to have been living under a rock not to have heard about the huge E10 fuel change planned for next year, whereby all E5 petrol will be changed to E10 as the new industry standard. Whilst the government claims that the switch to E10 unleaded fuel with 10% bioethanol mix will reduce vehicle emissions by 750,000 tonnes each year, it will, unfortunately, leave about 600,000 vehicle owners finding their cars incompatible with the new E10. The fact is, this fuel just isn’t compliant with older vehicles, which means classic cars are likely to need expensive upgrades
When the new E10 fuel changes come into effect in 2021, classic car owners may be forced to make extensive mechanical modifications to their vehicles, in order for their cars to be able to run on the new fuel and stay on the road. Experts have warned that the type of changes required could easily cost thousands of pounds, leaving many classic car owners unable to afford the changes they would need to make to keep their cars on the road.
Porsche has unveiled a couple of new head units that should make some classic Porsche car owners very happy. These new head units combine that classic vintage design, but with all of the modern conveniences of today’s in-car-entertainment, including things like Apple CarPlay, DAB+, high-resolution touchscreens, and Bluetooth.
